Lashing out at the BJP for levelling baseless allegations of corrupt land deals, RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav said on Friday it was an attempt to tarnish his image, as reported by NDTV. The veteran Bihar politician also said that the charges against him and his children over possessing benaami property worth crores of rupees have been fabricated to seek political revenge.

Earlier this week, the RJD supremo broke his silence on BJP’s allegations of corruption against him and his family when he said he will fight the ‘fascist’ forces, as reported by PTI. He had tweeted saying: “I am not scared of empty threats.”

A senior official had told PTI that people and businessmen connected to the land deal involving Lalu Prasad and his family were searched. RJD MP P C Gupta’s son’s house was also raided.

                  Man!!! Lalu is real representative of downtrodden! He like Mayavati inspires them how to attain rags to riches. The jealousy of Nitish for BJP, particularly Modi has provided new lease of life for corruption to his family.
